The film, which released on August 25, is the sequel to the successful “Dream Girl” from 2019 and is directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa. Produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor, the comedy flick has garnered mixed reviews from both critics and the audience. Ayushmann Khurrana’s portrayal of Pooja is being well-received.

Dream Girl 2 Box Office Collection

The film’s opening day collections were significantly contributed to by the three national cinema chains—PVR, Cinepolis, and INOX, which accounted for around 60% of the total collection, amounting to approximately Rs 5.35 crore. “Dream Girl 2” faces competition from the historical successes of “Gadar 2” and “Jailer,” with Sunny Deol’s film earning around Rs 35 crore and Rajinikanth’s film collecting nearly Rs 44.50 crore on their respective opening days. Notably, “Gadar 2” also became Bollywood’s biggest opener of 2023 after “Pathaan.”

Despite this, the film’s advance bookings indicate a promising start, with 26,550 tickets sold in advance bookings for its first day across national cinema chains like PVR, INOX, and Cinepolis.
